    Pro tip: if you don't have reserved tickets for the Wednesday audience with the pope in the piazza, talk with a Swiss Guard they might give you one 👌🏼🇨🇭🇻🇦

    Great space which holds a lot of meaning in it. When we visited there was something going on there, as there were chairs and music, but very interesting to see

    Very beautiful and worth the stroll around. However the food on the main strip is absurd and expensive. Inside the vatican museum the food is chaper.

    If you do not visit this area, it means you did not visit Rome. See the real art and architecture.

    Nice square, come in the morning as the sun behind the Basilica in the evening will ruin your photos.

    The best time to go is during the night. The church is lit up and you are almost alone.

    Entering just Piazza San Pietro is free if you are patient enough to stand in the line. However, if you wish to tour the chapel and museum as well, start your way from the museum.

    The colonnade is a handy place to shade from the sun, and refill your water bottle.
